    I installed the Auxbeam 8 gang switch panel. Ran all my auxiliary lighting through it and also control the ARB compressor with it.

    Nice, I haven't had time to install mine yet. Post some pictures. Where did you mount the switch?

    Sorry, I have been busy with work and haven’t had a chance to respond
    One of my main goals with this gang switch was to not have to do any cutting or destroy any parts. The gang switch only requires the switch control wires to pass through the firewall and it is about the size of one light bar switch wiring harness.
    I also have an overhead molle panel coming from Ohana Rig Supply and mounted the control switch temporarily with the intent to move it to the overhead panel when it shows up.
    I mounted the gang panel on the brackets that held a plastic cover on the passenger side between the air box and firewall. It’s pretty solid too. Excuse the lack of graphics as I am using my phone while I eat lunch D41BA3B0-BCA7-4094-9BFC-B40D7930D5E6.jpg 0CB1D2DF-44AF-47CD-8C1E-9D96094B4DEA.jpg
    I ran 4ga cable from the battery to the panel. It is set up for 6ga but with the ~8ft of distance, I chose 4ga and routed it to the inner fender and along the firewall with zip ties. Other wires attached are winch and compressor power.

    The Switch was powered by a fuse tap powered while ignition is on in the fuse box (rear wipers). and the switch was mounted on the left side dash ac vent insert with heavy duty 3m double sided tape as I found I can freeze it and pop it off with a little effort or buy a new one fairly cheaply if necessary.

    That's the same place I'm putting my controller. It seems to be the only place.

    Unfortunately, (or fortunately) the A pillar trim and headliner fit very well and I will have to do some work to hide the wires behind them. I also had to buy the control cable extension to reach the overhead panel. The Tundra had enough room to just tuck wiring behind everything.
